12 democrat Crooks Arrested in Harrisburg on Friday
After months of investigations and speculation,

PA Attorney General Tom Corbett arrested 12 individuals, all democrats,

in connection with his probe into lawmakers’ illegally using taxpayer dollars to fund political campaigns, last week.

One former House leader, one sitting representative, and 10 current or former caucus staffers were nabbed by agents of the AG’s office and delivered for arraignment in Harrisburg.

The Blog Tom Corbett Doesn't Want You To read:

Sat, 2012-11-10 10:24
Governor Tom Corbett seems to be unraveling a bit, and in a quite familiar way.

The former Attorney General of Pennsylvania's vigorous denial of slow-walking the Jerry Sandusky investigation and welcoming of Attorney General-elelct Kathleen Kane's investigation is quite similar to a very well-known proclamation from another prominent politician.

Is there anyone out there who doesn't believe Governor Tom Corbett should be investigated over his conduct in the tardy Jerry Sandusky investigation?

If so, then today provides even more rationale for a probe of then-Attorney General and gubernatorial candidate Corbett's lack of action that allowed a violent child-predator to walk the street for years after his heinous crimes came to light.

Corbett Fails to Answer Crucial Sandusky Questions
Let’s try again, Governor: Were you shielding PSU for votes or putting Bonusgate ahead of the capture of a child predator?

<quoted text>
Rep. David Rivera (R-FL)
Charges: Rivera is under investigation by the FBI and the IRS for multiple money laundering and tax evasion schemes.
Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY)
Grimm, a freshman congressman, set up an illegal system to funnel money into his campaign.
Essentially, there's a maximum amount that people can give to a campaign, and Grimm flouted that by setting up a way for big donors to give money through middlemen
Sen. David Vitter (R-LA)
Charges: Vitter — who is infamous for being fingered in a prostitution sting — is now under investigation for an attempted bribery of the U.S. Secretary of the Interior.
Rep. Harold Rogers (R-KY)
Charges: Rogers used his position as the Chairman of the House Appropriations Committee to steer millions of dollars in earmarks to a local manufacturing company in exchange for campaign contributions.
CREW's report claims Rogers engaged in an unseemly deal with the Kentucky manufacturing firm Phoenix Products, which later overcharged the Army for drip pans that were priced at 700% market value.
Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA)
Charges: Broun failed to disclose the true source of loans made to his campaign fund.
According to CREW, Broun lied a couple times about how he found a way to finance his first campaign. Essentially, Broun spent more money than he had during his first campaign for congress, and had to take out a bunch of loans to avoid being politically bankrupt.
Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-FL)
Charges: His list of potential violations include coercing contributions, conduit contributions, excessive contributions, corporate contributions, witness tampering, obstruction of agency proceedings, bribery of a witness, false statements of personal financial disclosure forms, tax evasion and conduct not reflecting creditably on the House.
Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-FL)
Charges: Stearns is accused of directing public money to his wife, misusing official congressional resources for a campaign, and also improperly using House proceedings on campaign materials.
According to the CREW report, Stearns secured $5 million worth of earmarks for his wife's employer, the College of Central Florida. Two days before one of his earmarks was passed, his wife's salary doubled, and as Stearns secured more funding for the school, his wife continued to rise through the ranks.
Rep. Don Young (R-AK)
Charges: Young, a 20-term congressman, is accused of earmarking transportation funds to a campaign donor, using campaign funds for personal expenses, and neglecting to disclose gifts from lobbyists.
The FBI has launched investigations into Rep. Young's "systemic abuse" of his position of trust.
Those damn Democratic crooks!
Now if you could just wake up and realize all the DEMS and GOP are criminals - maybe you would be getting somewhere......

Yes they wee crooks.

He also arrested Republicans for doing the same thing.

Funny part is some of the Democrats went to jail but those darn Republicans didn't even go to trial.

Another reason to go after Corbett.

I'm thinking he'll be resigned within 6 months.

Despite promises from President Obama that insurance costs would decline, premiums throughout Pennsylvania are increasing.

Highmark raised rates for small businesses by more than 50% in July 2010 and is requesting another 10% hike.

Blue Cross of Northeastern Pennsylvania was granted rate increases from 9% to 15%.

Aetna increased Individual Advantage Plan rates by 10%, citing the ACA.

Nationally, total government and private health care spending is projected to grow by 7.4% in 2014 (when many of the ACA provisions go into effect), and then continue to increase by 6.2% annually through 2021, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

The Affordable Care Act requires states to expand eligibility for Medicaid (government health insurance for the poor and disabled).
.
.

The expansion will extend Medicaid eligibility to an additional 800,000 Pennsylvanians, placing a quarter of state residents on government insurance.

.
.

Newly eligible Medicaid recipients in Pennsylvania would cost more than $21 billion from 2014 to 2022 according to the Heritage Foundation.

While federal tax dollars would cover the majority of this cost, state taxpayers' costs would range from $1.3 to $5.5 billion.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled the federal government cannot force states to increase Medicaid eligibility, making the expansion optional.

Even without the expansion, Medicaid costs are unsustainable.

Medicaid currently consumes about 30% of Pennsylvania's state operating budget.

Over the past decade, Pennsylvania Medicaid spending increased 83%, nearly twice as much as personal income (45% over the last 10 years).

The Government Accountability Office projects Medicaid expenditures will continue to grow faster than the economy even without the ACA expansion.

In addition to expanding Medicaid, the ACA extends entitlements to higher-income households-up to $43,560 per individual or nearly $90,000 for a family of four—by subsidizing the purchase of health insurance through "exchanges."

Government programs provide limited access to care and low-quality coverage.

Currently, one-third of Medicaid providers will not take new patients, according to a study published in the journal Health Affairs.

Pennsylvania's aging population, which depends on Medicare, will experience lower quality care as the ACA cuts Medicare Advantage (Medicare plans provided by private companies) and reduces doctor payments, which are already less than private insurance payments.

The new Independent Payment Advisory Board will ration limited Medicare funds by refusing to cover procedures it deems non-cost effective instead of leaving treatment decisions to the patient.

As a result of the ACA's new regulations, many doctors are planning to retire or stop taking new patients.

The Association of Medical Colleges estimated the United States would face a shortage of 62,900 doctors in just three years under the ACA.

The Doctors and Patient Medical Association Foundation found 83% of doctors are considering quitting due to government intervention.

Similarly, medical malpractice insurer The Doctor's Company found the ACA is motivating 43% of doctors to retire within the next five years.
